Capsule Legacy

Trojan War (1997)

Major segments of this are racist and/or problematic.

BUT! I found this really funny and charming (albeit horny) teen comedy. Will Friedle has awesome comic chops. I love him as a lead. Jennifer Love-Hewitt is a smokeshow and has awesome chemistry with Friedle. I love “one epic night” type stories — it heightens and literalizes the teenage experience of everything seeming to happen at once.

(Plus romances where best friends end up falling in love is one of my favorite tropes, so I’m probably overrating this a little.)

Is It Good?

Good (5/8)

Note: This capsule review was originally published elsewhere. If I watch this movie again, I might expand this to a full-length review.
